Turned out that when the antibiotic met the infection seriously major pain ensued from late Thursday to late Saturday. I have never had the experience of that degree of pain from a tooth infection, or any other, for that matter. I could have used some pain management. Couldn't sleep either Thursday night or Friday night. Still worse tenderness than when we met on Thursday.
If you can, I'd like to get into endodontist (?)early this week rather than wait another ten days. Or get some pain medication. Or something.
